This was one of the highlights of our trip! We can't wait to return to NYC to experience the Chelsea Food/Walking tour. Cindy, tour guide extraordinaire, was funny and really made the tour enjoyable and interesting and the food was fabulous. Two of our friends, native New Yorkers, joined us for the tour and they had a great time as well - and learned something about their city in the process. Cheers to all!

It was a great learning experience. Cindy was very entertaining. There are so many interesting storys within a few city blocks in the village. Things were brought to oue attention that we would have never noticed had we not taken the tour. I highly recommend it to anyone!

"Girls Trip to NYC" - 5 girls looking to explore Greenwich Village

Our only regret about this tour was that we didn't do it sooner!! We had such a good time, and learned SO much, that we realized we should have done it our first day in New York. We knew the "samples" were supposed to be enough for lunch - but quite frankly we didn't believe it. We ended up being full after only the first few samples! Do NOT eat breakfast before going on this tour!! Not only did we get a list of restaurants & shops to take home, but we learned about where to eat and why, as well as the history and culture of Greenwich Village. And our tour guide was HILARIOUS!! She was like a character out of Saturday Night Live and knew everything there was to know about the area. It wasn't boring for a second! It was the best thing we did on our entire trip!!

I would highly recommend this tour. There was alot of historical information supplied along with excellent food tasting activities. I would not recommend this tour for the winter. It was difficult to pay attention with my appendages feeling as though they would fall off at any moment. It is necessary to have a tour guide who speaks loudly. Otherwise you miss some good information.

My daughter and I were delighted with the historically based walking tour of Greenwich. The food samples were really delicious and the sights were terrific. Additionally, our guide was enthusiastic and knowlegable. The day of our tour was very cold so we would have preferred to walk more quickly between the restaurants, rather than lingering outdoors so long between stops. This is a three hour tour that could be two hours if we didn't linger so long on the street. Overall, we were very pleased with the tour and will recommend it to our friends who may visit New York.

Although I really enjoyed the tour, it was not at all what I expected. I learned a lot about different restaurants and shops in the area, but was surprised that we sampled from only 8 places (when there were over 30 listed). But, the samples were excellent and it was enough food to substitute for a lunch. I would recommend this to anyone interested. On top of that, the tour guide was excellent!

Very engaging guide [Michael?]. Liked the history of the Village and enjoyed learning about restaurants we will sample on future visits. Helped that it was a lovely sunny day in January.
